The Kano State Government has confirmed 74 new cases of coronavirus in the state.

Governor Umar Ganduje made this known on Saturday.

"We've taken samples of 489 people, out of these number 74 were confirmed positive for the virus,".

Meanwhile, the head of COVID-19 testing centre in Kano, Nasiru Magaji, on Saturday said there is no definite date for resuming the test in Kano.

He said that although the laboratory was opened on Friday, they are yet to commence treating samples.

"We have opened the lab since yesterday (Friday), but you can't run samples just like that when you open the lab. You have to do a lot of things. So, we are doing those things up (till) now," he said.

Commenting on when they would resume testing, Mr Magaji said, "We don't know until we finish everything. In a lab like that, you have to do all the safety procedures before you start exposing yourself.
